SOURCE: Is ACER al2016W monitor dual-voltage?


Voltage Required AC 120/230 V

Yes Bob, you can use it in UK 240V and I believe no adjustments required since they are swithed mode power supplies.

Just to make sure have look at the data label at the back of the monitor it should say AC 120/230V. UK 240 is OK since there is a +/- 10% variation allowed on that.

I got the information out of the specifications on line, so you should be OK.

Monitor will not power on


The monitor has entered permanent sleep mode. After four years of service, it probably is not worth repairing

Acer monitor wont turn on or off?


Hello,

This type of problem is usually caused by a failure in the power supply board. Here is a link to a repair guide that shows how to dis-assemble and repair the power supply board. If you can do a little soldering then you can repair the monitor.

Acer 2016W - When powered on, it shows colored lines (blue, green, red, yellow - vertical) and then goes to a blueish-green display color, no deskktop display at all, have tried switching out monitor...


Yep,

When the capacitors start to go out it causes the power supply to not provide the correct voltages. You monitor has the back light power but the 5v power going to the video driver board is not working correctly. Here is a link to a repair guide that will show you how to open the unit, remove the power supply board and what capacitors need to be replaced.

Might have to see iff this ffault is due to faulty solder joints on the main board.
you must remove and make a quick solder job of all the suspected joints, make sure the connectors to the display are tight.
If not the convergence section must be checked out

If it is a "blown, open" fuse, you have to ask the question "WHY is it open in the first place!!! Haven't you been to YOUTUBE yet? Lots of video clips of DIY repair to view and learn from!!! Yes, power IS getting to monitor, but power supply (AC to DC smps) not working!! Do your research at YOUTUBE first so you can tell us tech's more information on just what you found when you visually inspected the power supply board in your unit. Keep this in mind at all times!!! Your monitor isn't ANY DIFFERENT than any other "cold cathode fluorescent lamp, back-lit lcd monitor in it's basic design and operation!!!! 12fixlouie

Monitor turns off by itself


Try it on another PC first.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Monitor does not want to start up. The screen flickers for a moment and goes black. Usually lights up after switching on and off anything between 10 and 50 times.
